take a look at what's happened in the last few weeks, they sent the u.n. ambassador out to say that this was because of a protest and a youtube video. it took the president two weeks to acknowledge that this was a terrorist attack. he went to the u.n. and in his speech at the u.n. he said six times, he talked about the youtube video. look, if we're hit by terrorists, we're going to call it for what it is, a terrorist attack. our ambassador in paris has a marine detachment guarding him. shouldn't we have a marine detachment guarding our ambassador in benghazi, a place we knew there was an al qaeda cell with arms? this is becoming more troubling by the day. they first blamed the youtube video. now they're frying to blame the romney-ryan ticket for make thing an issue. with respect to iraq, we had the same position before the withdrawal, which was we agreed with the obama administration. the vice president was put in charge of the negotiations by president obama and they failed to get the agreement. we don't have a status of forces agreement because they failed to get one. that's
, she should have said that to the u.s. ambassador to the u.n. susan rice because she judged to conclusions and told us unequivocally what happened. i'm perplexed as to why the media has not gone to susan rice as a follow-up, what were you talking about? because the facts have now proven you to be wrong. where the u.n. press corps. where the state department press corps? >> she does not make herself very available. >> jon: she was very available on sunday morning. >> but then when you try to talk to her at united nations she will come out and make a few statements and then she is gone. >> now, look, when i heard secretary clinton say that, let's get to that after the elections, do us one favor and you can investigation all you want. >> i think at the same time susan rice was making her unequivocal statement about what this was and caused it. we had eli lake writing that within 24 hours there were indications from more than one intelligence source that this had been a preplanned attack involving al-qaeda or some elements thereof. clearly there is a conflicting view of the fact
. welcome, greg. >> indeed. good to see you. two of the top u.n. intelligence directors clamming vice president joe bidenen to try to lay the blame on the intel community rather than the white house. and hillary clinton offers another assessment, saying it's still too early for anyone to know exactly what happened. >> no one wants to find out exactly what happened more than i do. i have appointed an accountability preview board that's already started examining whether our security procedures were appropriate, whether they were properly implemented and what lessons we can and must learn for the future. and we are working as thoroughly and as exspeak dishly as possible knowing we can't afford to have accuracy to speed. our government it sparing no effort in tracking down the terrorists who perpetrated this attack. >> molly is joining us live in washington. molly. >> hi, jamie. a former cia director and a former homeland security director are saying vice president biden said it was erroneously linked by the obama administration to a protest over video is because the intelligence communit
here has been very success phil, especially using his u.n. speech, to put iran and sanctions center stage. the question for the israelis though, which president is going to take a tougher line with iran? obviously the prime minister here feels as though a president romney would take a much tougher line in the debate. vice president biden spent a lot of time trying to assure everyone that the under an obama administration, iran would not be allowed to get a bomb but privately a number of israelis really question the resolve of the obama administration to take the steps necessary for iran or possibly a military strike. jamie? jamie: leland vittert, live in jerusalem. leland, thank you so much. bill: now the morning after how are the two campaigns playing this debate today especially after exchanges like this one? >> 7.4 million seniors are projected to lose the current medicare advantage coverage they have, that is $3200 benefit cut. >> that didn't happen. >> these are from your actuaries. >> more people signed upper for medicare advantage after the change. >> mr. vice president -- so
there was no understanding or no agreement from the u.n. that diplomacy was given some time to work. >> it's great we got multilateral sanctions through the u.n. security council. unfortunately the price we paid for getting china and russia to buy into the sanctions was that the central bank sanctions would not be included. everyone agrees across the political divide in the united states who follow the issue closely that the central bank sanctions are the ones that had the real bite. the administration resisted efforts in congress repeatedly to get sanctions in place. you can cite, as they often do the economic implications. it's not clear to me why there were economic implications in 2009-2010 but not in # 2011-2012 but they said it would under mine the diplomatic strategy reaching out to the ayotollah, unconditionally trying to get unconditional talks. they were silent when there was a genuine protest movement in iran that would have put political pressure on the regime. all the moments whether it was economic or political pressure in 2009 and 2010 the administration did nothing because they believed t
. it looks like what goes up, well, goes up even more. according to a new u.n. report. hundreds of billions bid on expectations of temporarily rising prices for energy and food is the root cause of today's price volatility and not about to change any time soon. bad news for drivers in places like california where the average gallon of gas is $4.61. topping $5, actually, in so parts of the state. >>> in ohio, a legal win for president obama's campaign and the democrats. it should be easier for voters to cast their ballots in the key battleground state. a federal appeals court affirmed a lower court's decision to block the state's early voting restrictions, which would have closed early voting in person to most on the friday before election day. the state could appeal the court's ruling, but ohio's secretary of state says his office is currently reviewing that decision. we'll be talking to his assistant secretary of state at 9:00 eastern time. >>> death threats, threatening phone calls and vicious e-mails all because they decline to be a campaign stop for mitt romney, that is a terrifying res
that wasn't true. they perpetuated that lie in the u.n. when our u.n. ambassador said it was because of a youtube video, she knew better, and the president certainly did. the truth does come out. the cover-up is sometimes worse than the crime, but not in this instance when an ambassador is dead and three other americans as well. megyn: hindsight is 2020. he looked back with our ambassador dead and three others dead, we can see that security was not adequate in benghazi. but it is disturbing to hear about this according to colonel wood, that not only are we going to reduce what we have in place. >> you know, there are a couple of observations that i have to make. just three weeks ago, this happened. certainly, this serviceman has the right to speak out about what he knows. but it passes as strange to me that right now, efforts being made to buy these folks and bring them to justice, it may be disinformation. i know that brad will find this shocking, this information may assist in the effort. we do not know. wait a second, brad, to rush to judgment on this, simply because it is four we
speaks, the ambassador will speak to us. former ambassador to the u.n. and advisor to the romney campaign. so he's going -- i know i read some excerpts. he's delivering the speech right now. we haven't heard what he's actually saying at the moment but in reading some of the excerpts, i know he will be -- he will say the u.s. should be more assertive i guess in the syrian conflict. what should we be doing that we're not doing with regard to syria? >> well i think governor romney points out that the policy that the obama administration has followed the past 18 months has been a failure. the conflict continues. we relied on russia to help us find a way to ease the dictatorship out of power. that was never going to work. as a consequence with russia and iran still supporting assad, we have had this on going battle with probably over 20,000 civilians killed. what governor romney recommends in the speech -- in the speech is that we carefully select leaders in the opposition who we can trust and see if it is possible to support them. connell: but getting involved ourselves is not realistic, is i
, flat out ugliness of process in raddatz' question was in paul ryan's answer on the u.n. based diplomacy in iran. >> when barack obama was elected they had enough material to make one bomb. now they have enough for five. we've had four different sanctions, three from the bush administration, one here, and the only reason we got it is because russia watered it down. >> it is true the u.n. can be maddeningly dysfunctional. it's an accident of history and that russia's objections to any and all u.s. proposals can seem to americans truculant and spiteful. what exactly is the alternative? the answer is violence, war, death and bloodshed which brings us to the announcement yesterday from the nobel prize committee of a somewhat unusual choice. the european union. the announcement occasioned a whole lot of snark state side. not a good sign if the e.u. asks that its nobel prize be paid in some currency you other than the euro. jeffrey goldberg tweeted, next year the nobel committee should consider awarding the peace prize to puppies. dave wooegle, this guy right here, nobel me. the team at fox an
out our ambassador to the u.n. to every major news outlet saying that this was a spontaneous demonstration because of a hateful video. that's probably one of the worst things that i have ever observed in my life, and obviously, there were warnings and obviously anybody who believes that an attack with mortars and rocket-propelled grenades and a very sophisticated attack is the result of a video, i mean, it's just ridiculous. and finally, piers, it's not the video that's stoking these demonstrations. as you know, it's the radical islamists that are using the videos as a means of inflaming passion in the middle east and i'll be damned if i'm ready to abandon the freedom of speech because it might offend the prophet muhammed. >> we've heard calls for ambassador rice to resign. are you in favor of that? >> no. i think that's shooting the messenger. she was told to go out and do that. i blame the secretary of state, i blame the operatives in the white house and i blame our national security advisor. if the president didn't know exactly what happened, he sure as hell should have. >
determined by the intelligence committee as a terrorist attack, they trotted out our ambassador of the u.n. to every major news outlet saying that this was a spontaneous demonstration because of a hateful video. that's probably one of the worst things that i have ever observed in my life, and obviously there were warnings, and obviously anybody who believes in an attack with mortars and rocket hi rocket-propelled grenades, a very sophisticated attack, is the result of a video is just ridiculous. it's not the video that's stokingdemonstrations, it's the iraqis who are using these videos, and i'll be damned if i'm going to vacate the freedom of speech because of muhammad. >> are you in favor of her resigning? >> no, she was shooting the messenger. she was told to do that. i blame the secretary of state, i blame the operatives in the white house and i blame our national security adviser. if the president didn't know exactly what happened, he certainly should have. >> final aly a border agent cald nicholas ivie was killed in the state of arizona. two soldiers were arrested in the shooting. the
including u.s. ambassador to the u.n., did interview after interview connecting the attack to anger over a movie. bill: want to start with peter doocy live in washington. the why is the state department now saying the attack not spontaneous? >> reporter: because lethality and number of armed attackers is unprecedented in recent diplomatic history. plus there was no protest in front of consulate on the night of the attack. the people inside the compound heard explosions before 9:00 p.m. >> we have no information to suggest that it was a plea planned attack. -- preplanned attack. it is not reaction to the 9/11 anniversary that we know of. >> in fact this was not a preplanned, premeditated attack. >> reporter: we know the administration did internally classify as a terrorist attack within 24 hours. we expect to hear a lot more three hours from now in a house oversight committee hearing just across the street that is being billed simply as the security failures of benghazi. bill. bill: i'm looking at four witnesses. any heads up what they will say, peter? >> we heard a little bit from two of
is going on with these reasoning before the debating -- you know, and after the debate and we call it e-n-u-n-b. and that's evil nasty unintelligent bullies. bullies don't frighten us. we know the president is going to win this election. >> stephanie: yep. there were 6,000 of us telling the president we had his back last night. >> caller: that was beautiful. in that was beautiful. >> stephanie: yeah. >> caller: but ann colter said our blacks are better than your blacks. i'm saying that our camp -- we say our camp is better than your camp. meaning we have intelligent individuals when we come to pundits like miller and other people, and they have people like rush limbaugh okay? in comparison -- >> stephanie: let me say, unequivocally, jerry, our blacks are better than their blacks. [ applause ] >> really, steph? >> stephanie: she started it, ann coulter. jim, reince preibus -- >> reince preibus >> stephanie: here is an interesting report. >> america still needs jobs yet the president's proposal would mean fewer jobs. [ whining ] [ laughter ] >> stephanie: he has the most ann
to the u.n., they can't get a coherent story about what happened now more than a month ago. >> and all the vice president said was we're going to get to the bottom of it. i love what peggy noonan said, "oh, good." >> let me show the clip and then i have a question for you because the night began, right out of the box, martha raddatz went right to libya and the deadly assault that killed four americans. >> it took the president two weeks to acknowledge that this was a terrorist attack. look, if we are hit by terrorists, we're going to call it for what it is, a terrorist attack. this benghazi issue would be a tragedy in and of itself, but unfortunately, it's indicative of a broader problem, and that is what we are watching on our tv screens is the unraveling of the obama foreign policy. >> with all due respect, that's a bunch of malarky. this lecture on embassy security, the congressman here cut embassy security in his budget by $300 million below what we asked for. we weren't told they wanted more security. we did not know they wanted more security again. and by the way, at the time we
attack and yet, five days after that attack, they sent out our u.n. ambassador on all the major news shows, including fox news sunday, and said that this was a spontaneous demonstration triggered by a hateful video. no one, no one, no one in position of responsibility should have allowed that message to be sent. i think we ought to be finding out who is it, who is that told ambassador rice to say something which was absolutely false to the american people and why. so obviously there is other aspects of this, but that alone is really -- if you're not going to go on national television and not tell the american people the truth, then that is a degree of politization of national security, which is not acceptable. >> steve: senator, the state department made it clear that within a day, they were telling people that it was a terrorist attack. it sounds like, because you said politization, it makes it sound like some of the people behind the campaign were pushing, okay -- this is a tricky time for us. maybe we should be saying this. is that what you're saying? >> i don't know. i don't unde
of the attack provided on "meet the press" by u.s. ambassador to the u.n. susan rice on september 16th, five days after the incident took place. >> putting together the best information that we have available to us today. our current assessment is that what happened in benghazi was, in fact, initially a spontaneous reaction to what had just transpired hours before in cairo. almost a copycat of the demonstrations against our facility in cairo, which were prompted, of course, by the video. what we think then transpired in benghazi is that opportunistic extremist elements came to the consulate as this was unfolding. >> today congress is set to hold a hearing on the attack. it's expected to focus on potential security lapses at the compound and whether the administration originally down-played the link to terrorist elements. >> in "newsweek" this week we're talking about susan rice coming under fire. it seems, though, this story continues to evolve. the white house can't get the story straight. at first it was the video. then it was a spontaneous demonstration, and then it was a terror plot. now
terrorist attack, they send out our u.n. ambassador to tell everybody, on all major news shows that this was a spoon stainio iospontaneo demonstration bred by a hateful video. you don't have spontaneous demonstrations with mortars and rocket-propelled grenades. look, iraq, because we didn't leave a residual force behind, al qaeda's back and iranians are exerting their influence. in afghanistan because the president overruled his military advisers time after time we're seeing this terrible afghans in uniform killing americans in uniform. the palestinian/israeli peace process moved forward, not at all, and the iranians continue on their path to nuclear weapons and 30,000 people have been killed in syria and we do nothing. it's really a failed leadership that i think that mitt romney will be able to capitalize on. finally, t"the military times" s a newspaper for the military men and women, they took a poll of the men and women in uniform, guess who won by almost 3:1, mitt romney, those people know about national security. >> senator, we hear time and time again there will have to
contributor and a new book called "here come the black helicopters, u.n. global governance and the loss of freedom." nice to see you. welcome to the show. >> good to be here. >> david: a moment from the debate where paul ryan defends himself on medicare, substantive argument about this particular issue. take a listen. >> they put a new obama care board in charge of cutting medicare each and every year to lead to deny care for current seniors. the board, 15 people. the president is supposed to appoint him next year and not one needs medical training. social security, if we don't shore up social security when we run out of the ious, and the program goes bankrupt, 25% across the board benefit cut kicks in on the current seniors in the middle of their retirement. we'll stop that happening. >> david: so that was a big moment for vice president biden hoping to pigeon hole congressman ryan on the medicare,, the thing he supported cutting that money on that program. who won that moment? >> guest: i think ryan was very impressive in defending his position on that. that was ryan's key vulnerabili
to it during the 2011 world championships, using their mutual korean heritage asthma n -- as manipulation. >> in the asian culture, when another skz you to do something, it's very difficult to deny. >> reporter: his lawyer says his client won't comment until after the hearing, but the u.s. speed skating federation says they cannot prove it was the coach's idea. >> we do not believe there is sufficient evidence to conclude that the coach directed simon cho to tamp we are the skates. >> reporter: the canadian star knew there was something wrong with his skates the first lap of the relay and was forced to withdraw. he used a bending machine to tamp we are the blades. any change of alignment at those speeds could have been extremely dangerous. >> clearly they undermine the credibility of the sport. this is a tremendous black eye for u.s. speed skating. >> reporter: cheating scandals regularly rock sports fans' faith. during the london games, a chinese badminton pair deliberately threw a match so their team could win more medals. some of the biggest names in baseball have been suspended for us
